This year, Ka`imi Hanano`eau recieved a Nā Hōkū final ballot nomination for his EP “Ukulele What?” in the EP of the year category.
Ka`imi’s outfit this year showcased light tones of brown with a touch of red. He wore brown shoes with red tips, made by Robert Wayne. His dress shirt is custom-made, and the designs are hand-stitched by Puamana Crabble of Puamana Crabble Designs. Check Ka`imi out in Star Advertiser’s Nadine Kam’s coverage of the first annual Poi Planet Style Awards (see below).
Next week, Ka`imi will be in Canon City, Colorado performing at the Royal Gorge White Water festival on June 24th and 25th, being the only act to perform on both days of the event. He will also be releasing a new EP that will consist of his signature alternative-rock style along with rock-reggae tracks.
